The Alsternixe - Shipwreck off Oregon 1903

Surfing (not the right kind) the internet the other day, I came across a great NW Surfing blog, "Surf in Oregon". Scrolling down, I was excited to find a posting on a shipwreck which I happen to have a picture of on my office wall which I found at an Antique Mall. It's the story of the Alsternixe, a German bark which ran aground SW off Cape Disappointment at the mouth of the Columbia River which separates Washington from Oregon. More here...

Rob - what do you think about SUPing the mouth of the Columbia? Too crazy?

andre, totally fine in the right conditions or depending on your skill level. it can be big water and a lot of current. check out ginni callahan's site, she's a kayak instructor in Skamokawa but is in baja this time of year (shouldn't we too?) her site has some useful info for that area, give me a holler too and she if she responds, http://www.skamokawakayak.com/

there is a beach north of the jetty on the wa side called 'waikiki', classic.
